Cold, foggy morning. It is suppose to burn off and get to 60+ today. Wouldn’t that be nice! Headed down to Auntie’s house. A fair amount of shuffling already sorted stuff that I placed in carport last Summer and now blocks access into the garage. I left a bit of a trail, but it needs to be widened out and the footing made safer. The red pump was a favorite of my dad. I grabbed it as we were cleaning out their home.
I went by the old house the other day. The new owners have torn out all the shrubs, roses and clematis my parents tended to. They have planted some trees in the front yard and are putting their touches on their property.
So be it. I am sure, in retrospect, my parents did the same when they took the property over from the original owner. Life goes on. Not always as we would have it, but we must look for the positives…the half full moments (or totally full!) of life on a daily basis when dealing with loss, with grief, with change.
